I bought the Hi2050 because it looked liked the Beyer DT880, the real DT880 does sound better, but the Hi2050 is still a good value.

Hopefully someone out there will release some kind of adapter... even if it's an unofficial one you have to get off Amazon or Ebay or something.

 

At absolute worst case scenario, I would think it would be possible to cut up the official xbox one headset and use it to be able to connect to a mixamp. After all, it is using a single speaker and a single microphone as does the current gen.

Quote from Forbes:
In talking to a developer who wished to remain anonymous, gamers will see a difference on Day One when they compare third party PS4 games to Xbox One head-to-head. The developer told me the PS4 is 40 percent more powerful than Xbox One and games like Call of Duty Ghosts will be noticeably different out of the gate.

Oh. Well then XD

So... PS4 40% more powerful... Wow...

As it currently stands, buying the Xbox One should be a sign that the person is simply choosing to purchase an inferior product or simply lacking logical rational.

Things could change in the future.

TV TV TV TV, SPORTS, TV TV TV TV, CALL OF DUTY, TV TV TV. Couldn't help myself.

Not true. I know plenty of people that buy systems specifically for the exclusives, or because it's what all their other friends have. Believe it or not, games like Halo and Gears of War ARE system sellers, and have their large following.

As for owning what most friends have, this generation might change to Sony, but some cicles may just get the XBone.

I agree. Many do buy to follow their friends.

I don't feel like the exclusives on Xbox are good enough to justify the purchase, but some of my friends, including my best friend did for the 360.

Although, I am bias towards PC gaming over both simply for the love of mouse and keyboard.

Been a longtime BF3 player on PS3 for the friends aspect, but never got around to purchasing it on PC. When I picked it up the other day for $5, I was reminded why I love a mouse and keyboard: it's just that much faster/accurate at destroying faces.

I'll never be a mouse and keyboard guy. Just not in me. If a PC gamr doesnt have at least legit controller support, I won't play it. BF3 has MINIMAL controller support, and it's an absolute hassle, as certain commands need the keyboard (like QTE which asks for left mouse click, etc).

I don't understand why Bioware didnt have the console UI for Mass Effect 2 and 3 as the alternative. They obviously designed it, but couldn't be arsed to incorporate it into the PC version? What utter nonsense. It's very hard playing those games with a controller emulating a mouse and keyboard.

With the rise of PC gaming (especially those coming from consoles), companies need to be flexible enough to support controllers by default. At least the 360 controller, which some games support and even change the on screen buttons to 360 buttons.

Exclusives aside, it sounds like the PS4 is going to be the best console system to play multi-platform games on, since it seems to have better hardware in the 8 gigs of GDDR5 vs xbox's DDR3 and more powerful GPU @ ~1.8 tflops vs the xbox's ~1.2.

Halo and Sunset Overdrive are the games that look worth it - Halo because of the story, and Sunset Overdrive jut because I don't know what it is and it has tons of really bright colors. The Story I can read about and watch on youtube. Sunset Overdrive - Well, a console isn't worth it for one game. Especially since all these games can run straight off windows 7 XD

 

Edit: Just wanted to make a small correction, the PS4 uses GDDR5. biggrin.gif

If were talking FPS gaming, you are putting yourself at a serious disadvantage using a controller for PC gaming lol.

I've heard otherwise. Maybe in tournament level gaming, but for normal use, I'm sure I'd be fine. It's more than twitch shooting. Getting the jump on people takes priority. My aiming is good enough. We'll see what the future holds, but I could care less about K&M and will never, ever go that route.
post #14474 of 25603

Why? What do you dislike about it? My problem with computer gaming is that you can't relax. I don't play anything competitive at all, so the K+M set up makes me feel like I'm trying to play it in that manner, instead of the sit back, play slowly, and think about what the game means. This shouldn't be your problem with it since you love FPS games, though, so I'd like to know what you dislike about it.

I'm with MLE.  I don't enjoy gaming with a keyboard and mouse, and I'll take a gamepad over it any day.   I don't deny that keyboard and mouse has an advantage, but at least on consoles it's an even playing field.

 

The gamepad is MUCH more comfortable for me and I can lean back and get immersed in the game.  Using a keyboard and mouse you have to sit forward more and always keep your hands in the same spot - like your hands are shackled to the desk.  There's more hardware involved, it's a less transparent experience, and it takes me out of the game.  IMO.

 

Plus after a little while I feel like this guy:
